Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Symbolic links on download area


Yes, I don't think you can serve a file that's a link.

If you're trying to implement a repository that's a moving target, a better approach is to specify it as a composite that composes a single child, and update that composite to point at the new child each time (rather than updating the symbolic link to point at a new repository each time).

I just seem to have troubles using symbolic links on the download area.

I would like to make a simple link "current" -> "v1.2.3".

I can access it with "sftp" logging in to "".

But when I access any file with that link from "" I
get the following message:

Access Forbidden
The file permissions are either wrong, or there is no default index file
for this directory.

Please consider filing a bug against the project to let them know.

Any ideas what is wrong?
